Help Me Get VR Therapy to Honduran Cancer Children

Hello friends, Bianca Jade here :)

I recently visited my family’s beautiful country of Honduras where I spent time volunteering with the Honduran Children’s Cancer Foundation: "La Fundacíon Hondureña Para El Niño Con Cancer ". It was unsettling and difficult to see Honduran children in treatment, suffering not just physically but mentally through their disease. I know this happens in every country but third world countries are at a disadvantage and need our support.


The Honduran Children’s Cancer Foundation has implemented incredible therapeutic activities for their over 6000 young patients. Instead of sitting through chemo deflated, the kids are transported to outer space, a breezy beach, or just somewhere awe inspiring that takes their mind off of the medicine, the sickness and stress. And it all happens with 3D Virtual Reality!

The kids absolutely love it. It fascinates them and brings creativity and entertainment to an otherwise sad and sterile environment. Many of these fighters have a great chance at recovery and then there are the ones who do not, but they still should have and feel the will to live.


I was able to spend some time with these precious souls and I knew from the core of my heart I had to get involved. So I’m asking you, at a very special time of year when we open our hearts to giving, to join me in helping to raise money for this cause. It doesn't matter what you give, every dollar donated is a gift that will be put into this program to help the children you see in this video and the 6000 that are being treated daily.

To begin putting the Virtual Reality program into effect so that there are enough VR headsets and equipment for the children during their treatments, we need to raise $5000. I KNOW WE CAN DO IT and raise so much more to fully cover the implementation of this program. And I will be perfectly honest here, but right now there is only 1 headset at the hospital.  We are aiming to purchase 50. 

Cancer treatment isn’t just about medicine, it’s about the fight to live and staying positive. The Virtual Reality program is already working with the limited equipment the foundation has, but I know we can do this together with your help! Please give what you can and thank you from my heart and from these children who will grow up to pay it forward one day because you helped.

Many of the survivors from this hospital (now in their 20's) actually work for the foundation as volunteers and employees. If that doesn't warm your heart, then maybe this photo of this little girl will. She is who your donations are going to. Gracias and HAPPY HOLIDAYS.
